LINDEN—Officers cited 225 drivers on Linden roads for lead-foot actions last month, according to police.
The citations during the “Obey the Signs or Pay the Fines” campaign for the month of July brought the total number of summons issued to 444, said Linden Police Traffic Bureau Sgt. Michael Babulski.
During the period from July 1 to 31, officers also issued 37 careless driving citations, 23 seat belt law violation citations, 146 other traffic violation citations and arrested 13 persons for DWI, Babulski said.
The “Obey the Signs or Pay the Fines” campaign is the part of the “120 Days of Summer ”campaign which cracks down on traffic violations during the summer. The City of Linden received a $4,000 grant from the NJ Division of Traffic Highway Safety for overtime speed enforcement.
Babulski said Linden Police will continue to have increase patrols looking for speeding violations which will continue throughout the year. Two people have died in traffic-related incidents in Linden this year where speed was a contributing factor, he said.
